- “COVID-19 disrupts care for injuries”
- “Losses Mount For N.H. Hospitals As COVID-19 Disrupts Healthcare Industry”
- “As COVID-19 spread through the United States, New Hampshire hospitals closed nonessential units almost overnight. Some of the most profitable services for hospitals, like nonessential surgeries and cardiac care, were paused for months.”
These closures and disruptions have profoundly impacted services including physical therapy, with many of the main facilities in our area being understaffed and at limited capacity. The results are waiting lists and scheduling delays for up to 2 weeks at outpatient facilities located at Elliot, CMC, Southern NH and Parkland Hospitals to mention a few.
During the closures, furloughs, and layoffs in some of the major hospitals in the region, FPTS has remained open and serving you throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. Our Helping Hands column seems like an appropriate place to let you and your loved ones know that we have continued to provide you that uninterrupted “helping hand” during your recovery. In fact, not only are we open, but we are NOT experiencing delays in getting you scheduled for your much-needed physical therapy.
If you or a loved one has been referred to another physical therapy facility and it’s going to take many days or weeks to be seen, I’m here to tell you that YOU DON’T NEED TO WAIT THAT LONG! Give us a call at 603.644.8334 or go online and request an appointment. No delays. No waiting. Faster recovery.
